Join Our Army
VOLUNTEER. DONATE. GIVE.
When you support the work of The Salvation Army, you are making a difference in the lives of children and families in the Greater River Valley Region. Volunteering with The Salvation Army is an opportunity to directly serve our community. Donating goods helps those in need while also providing funding for essential programs. And your financial donations and planned giving ensures continued services to thousands in our surrounding communities.
Current Volunteer Opportunities

Every child deserves to experience the joy of Christmas morning. The Salvation Army Angel Tree program helps provide Christmas gifts for hundreds of children around the River Valley each year. Once a child (0-11) has been registered and accepted as an Angel their Christmas wish list is shared with local donors in the community who purchase gifts of new clothing and toys. The gifts are distributed to the family to place under their family Christmas tree. To sponsor and angel or volunteer in our distribution warehouse, give us a call at (479) 783-6145 or email us at email@example.com.
Serving at The Red Shield Diner
Gather your friends, family, or co-workers and spend the evening cooking and serving for the guests who visit our Red Shield Diner. Our guests include both individuals and families who need a meal to sustain them daily or who need some extra help to make ends meet this month. Your team is responsible for bringing in food and preparing it for roughly 100 - 120 people. Please contact us at 479-783-6145 or firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about nights available to serve and the number of guests for which to provide food.
